Two weeks ago, when UConn beat Kentucky in the Final Four to advance to the NCAA title game, former Huskie Ray Allen won a bet with former Wildcat Rajon Rondo. Rondo didn't lose any cash, but he was forced to wear UConn gear throughout a three-day road trip.
Now, Allen has revealed that Rondo reneged on that bet.
"I didn't get it to him because I couldn't find his size," Allen said of the UConn clothing. "It's hard to find a medium sweatsuit."
Allen said he had a large available, but Rondo couldn't wear it. Too big.
The other option, of course, was to force Rondo to go out and shop for his own UConn apparel as part of the terms of the bet. Allen opted to be a good teammate and go easy instead.
"No, I didn't want to put that pressure on him," he said. "Rondo wouldn't go out to buy no UConn stuff. So he skated on that one."
